to tom waiting in clinton, maryland on our line for democrats. good morning. caller: hi. a second on to take your previous colors. one who said something about president obama -- no one listens to him. obama speaks in concert with the house and senate. he doesn't just come out make statements. he represents the american government when he speaks. president putin is going to do what he is going to do and president obama has no control over what he does. there are international obligations that russia has as far as ukraine is concerned. that man is supposed to speak out about these things. as far as what he wants to do as far as working to russia to resolve this problem is another matter. take supposed to opposition or exception to what he feels is a breach of international obligation by russia. thank you very much. thanks to him and his administration we are not the country we used to be." "he's the twitter page -- to pray for ukraine." we will stay on this topic for the next 20 minutes or so here on the washington journal. we want to point out a few of the other headlines going on
for "variety." on hillary clinton, should she decide to run for president? the headline, "hollywood prepares to shower hillary clinton with support." there are republicans that hollywood would support as well. explain the story. seems tollary clinton be laying the groundwork for something. she has been visiting los angeles quite a few times. she will be back this week and speaking at ucla. lands, ant of perp number of people in the entertainment industry are actually getting ready for this. they are working for super packs that have been set up, what is called "ready for hillary." usa".s called "priorities katzenburg is leading the fundraising for that super pac. he is reaching out to donors in the entertainment business to for theuild support potential clinton candidacy, in the event that happens. host: ted johnson is senior editor for "variety." his work is available online at variety.com. think you for joining us. again, a look at the new york times. this photograph of russian troops in crimea. at last count, 15,000 troops and the acting ukrainian government is calling the entry into the
to the clouds in the sea, hillary clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 democratic nomination and the front runner in the next presidential race. in private, rumors persist that the former secretary of state may not even be capable of making it to iowa and new hampshire. clinton will not run for president again because of health concerns." clinton and mike huckabee are in the lead in the 2016 iowa poll. this is a new poll put out. those two are in the lead. there is the headline. back to your calls on the fourth anniversary of the let's move campaign. judy is west virginia. -- judy is in west virginia. caller: i'm so excited about the let's move campaign, especially about the changes in the lunch program. the school i am in now. the labeling helps. i do see the children eating more healthy food than they had in the past. -- it has taken time. they resist change. these two not want to eat the vegetables. -- they used to not want to eat vegetables. they used to throw them away but now they are starting to eat them. we have had resistance not just from the children but from the e
the clinton administration and congress last raised the gas tax. that was 21 years ago when gasoline was $1.08 and i wonder if barack had even met michelle and there it remained for 21 years. due to inflation and fuel economy increases, the average cost per mile that the american motorist pays to the federal government for transportation has been cut in half. i went on the budget and the ways and means committee the last eight years in order to deal with this issue, but frankly i'm tired of waiting. i introduced a gas tax increase phased in over three years to fully fund a six-year re-authorization. was pleased to be joined by friends during my bill introduction by the u.s. chamber, the afl-cio, truckers and a.a.a., transit, local government, environmentalists, road builders. i find it hard to say people will say this will be a heavy lift because there's little support for it. when chairman camp offered $150 billion last week in his tax reform bill, what president obama suggested $300 billion, where was their broad base of support? maybe that's why both proposals were called dead on arrival
needed to turn to a 68 year old woman who would be hillary clinton. [laughter] [applause] but i digress. now as you heard from my friend jeff lord, gerald ford went on to lose to a very weak democratic candidate named jimmy carter. reagan went on to win in 1980 and 1984 to the a distant landslide in american history. popular vote, i would remind karl rove and the electoral college. [applause] having campaigned personally for reagan and a 9076 and 1980, i want you to listen. i feel certain he would be enormously proud of you. in fact, i think he would've been thrilled to that in front of you right here and thank you for all you are doing and all you have done and congratulate you on this fifth anniversary of the tea party movement. and i think it is appropriate to end my comments with a truism from president reagan which is the last paragraph from my book which most of you have heard by now but i am going to repeat it anyway. for those of you who have not. reagan wrote and said this many freedom is never more than one generation away from not pass itwe did in the blood for and it
important. i think the secretary clinton, , both of saidy this war will not end until there's some way to see if reconciliation is possible. there is a second principle as well, which is, i always felt in -- inme ahead district the time had this responsibility, this idea that if you favor reconciliation is another reason to be in favor of . it is a verya important reason to be in favor of can you -- of continued support for afghan national security forces. are watching carefully how we work our way through these next few months to decide if there'd -- if there will be any pressure. the effect of the military is still really important. the third point seems to me that as you look back, it makes you isnk about it very carefully the end conditions. what is this reconciliation all about? that is about an afghanistan that lives with the rule of law and an afghanistan that supports the rights and responsibilities for all citizens, but particularly women. i think the questions of reconciliation are sure high on the administration's agenda, but the principles remain the same. you asked me to t
clinton as a glamorous figure, and we can talk about that more. i think of him as a charismatic figure, a highly charismatic figure, and that is different, but, yes, i would say there is a lot of glamour going on, and first of all, he has got sunglasses on, and sunglasses is one of the best way. >> why? >> well, it is mostly because they create mystery. you are not completely hidden. you can still see your face, but there is that sort of mystery and distance, and we talk about jackie and her sunglasses, and he is very graceful. and the other thing which is nowadays hard to remember is how young he seem in 1992 in a positive way. he did not seem young as in not ready for president. i read never talking to my sister-in-law who was a big fan of the clinton-gore team, and it was great to vote for them because you felt the young people had arrived, and this moment has that kind of -- oh, would it not be great if the president were in sync with popular culture, and i think particularly for a younger audience, the idea that he did this was very glamorous. >> recently, we did a series on all t
. we were constantly having to fight bill clinton, and fight against some of the things our leadership was doing. we did not come back to be a mindless lemming elephant over the donkey. we came back with bellies. to bring government spending don't. to live within our means. to get fair taxes. we actually believed the things that the republican party stood for. that too is our big crime. they called us the bad boy republicans. now, to be referred to as a tea party patriot makes my life a lot easier. my wife did not like the bad boy republican thing. i want you to know what brought me back because i left for 12 years. i kept my term limit pledge. i never thought i would come back again. when i left, we had balanced the budget for the first time in 40 years. in 1998 we balance the budget. the year i left, in 2000, we have a $247 billion surplus. the federal budget was $1.7 trillion. fast forward 12 years, i see what happened 2010, with you glorious patriots standing up and fighting against the most to radical -- tyrannical president that we have ever had in the history of america. my juic
in the washington times on bill clinton. his message for democrats. picture of him with a kentucky democrat in louisville yesterday. himes.e talking with jim the national finance chairman of the house democrats. we will be talking about the 2014 field coming up in about five minutes or so. have a bit of time left. go to doug in wake forest, north carolina on our line for democrats. good morning. caller: thank you. for decades, the ar american people of wondered why the middle east continues to blow itself up. the interpretation of ancient transcripts. i would like to say that one of you to the people of arizona for helping us find ourselves on the same path. host: let's go to john in florida on our line for independents. caller: i knew this was going to be the first piece when i heard about it yesterday. -- i'mm not hearing is hearing a lot of religion and atheists. i'm not hearing the simple question, is a naturally echo you come down to the issue, nobody wants to talk about homosexuality the act. they talk about two people in love. a nice, romantic, rosy picture. when you talk about the a
% that hillary clinton will be the runner. is this a foregone conclusion about hillary clinton? thesecuracy forecasting things is wrong, how does this shape up on the democratic side? you mentioned the chance of immigration reform in lame deck. -- in lame duck. what do you think? >> i would defer to charlie and is worth knowing that both of us do not get paid by the word. we get paid nothing. >> not here anyway. this is the believe in free speech, how would you like to give one? [laughter] >> i will defer to charlie on that. ithink i share his view that is not a sentient that she will run. she willnot a cinch run. i have heard you say that. >> if this is a political decision, she is running. take it to the bank. i would argue that a lot of bush things like the jeb example are personal decisions as well as political. there is a 30% chance or so she does not run. is logic is, right now, she 66 years old, she will turn 67 later this year in october. 68 inll be 67 going on 2015. she will be 69 two weeks before the election in 2016. can you get elected at 69? of course you can, that was the same
in president clinton's executive order 12866 and president obama's executive order 13563. section 8 closes the blatant often exploited loophole inconsistent with legislative intent and spirit of the law, again, i think this legislation is doing exactly what the congress should be doing and that is sticking with legislative intent and making sure that we are looking after the fact that the laws we pass are adhered to. since title 2 of umra says that agencies must develop a written statement describing the effects of their regulations on state, local and tribal governments as well as the private sector unless otherwise prohibited by law. some agencies have concluded that general statutory language, limiting the consideration of economic costs and setting regulation, prohibits them from preparing a written statement evaluating the noncost element. recertificating legislative intent, this section of my bill prevents this loophole from being exploited for purposes of ignoring umra requirements by clarifying that agencies must conduct umra analyses unless a law expressly prohibits them from doin
become perhaps the most experienced diplomatic troubleshooter in the u.s. government. he was the clinton and george w. specialinistrations' envoy for afghanistan, kosovo, bosnia, haiti and somalia. spots, he hit them all. him in thes involved withdrawal of u.s. forces from somalia, the american-led in turn mention -- intervention in haiti, the stabilization of bosnia and the nato intervention in cozumel. he is truly a man for all seasons and a good friend. after september 11, 2001, ambassador dobbins was appointed as the bush administration's representative to the afghan opposition with the task of putting together a broadly-based successor to the ousted taliban regime. he represented the united states at the bonn conference to establish the new afghan government. on december 16, 2001, he raised the flag over the newly reopened u.s. embassy in kabul. i can't think of a better person to be entrusted with guiding u.s. policy through the challenges and opportunities of the political insecurity transition and afghanistan. ambassador dobbins. [applause] >> thank you very much, steve. thanks t
for fiscal year 2015. hillary clinton saying that in florida on wednesday night, the path for the nation' will lies in the broadening of participation of women, the poor, young people, and other disadvantaged people in the public debate. brian, columbus, ohio. republican caller. caller: thank for taking my call. i had a comment about the infrastructure. while i was on hold, you are talking about --. there is a show that was on a while ago. it talked about the crumbling of america. it is basically an advertisement for which you are talking about. it is a national security thing. it is needed. i was going to make a comment about how -- we are already 17 trillion in debt. it seems it will raise the rate again if they keep doing that. at some point, it is going to burst. they seem to know something we do not about why they don't care what our debt is right now. we need to get it done. saying,s the arizona religious freedom issues in this country, it amazes me how we go out of our way for muslims, but we don't care about offending christians. a muslim cab driver, they will not get in the -- a
. umra suzz was a good bill but over time such -- some shortcomings became apparent such as the clinton and late ore ba ma administrations had -- have written executived orers to fix the loopholes within it. as many of my colleagues can confirm it takes a lot of creativity and hard work to pass legislation as a member of a minority party. when democrats gained control of congress back in 2007 i sat down with my staff to think about legislative ideas that could gain sufficient bipartisan support to clear a democrat congress. this bill is the result of those efforts. h.r. 899 has bipartisan d.n.a. it codifies those administrative fixes championed by presidents clinton and obama and promotes good government accountability and transparentcy. as a testimony to this fact, the bill is co-sponsored by three of my democrat colleagues here in the house, representatives mike mcintyre, collin peterson and loretta sanchez. i owe them a debt of gratitude for their efforts in promoting this commonsense bill. 'm especially grateful for representative james lankford a republican co-sponsor of this bill,
in the front row. and after that speech, our then secretary of state, hillary clinton, made the statement that mubarak needs to be gone yesterday, he needs to be gone yesterday. the egyptian people didn't understand why it appeared to them that the new administration was supporting the muslim brotherhood opposing mubarak and implying that the leader of the muslim brotherhood should come to power. and as they demonstrated in the streets, mubarak was pushed out and into elected office -- was the leader of the miami brotherhood. and it is incompetence in the government and each move was that they wouldn't some another election and the individual ights they had was going to be diminished. and the 83 million egyptians, of which 5.6 million voted for morsi as president and he did an incompetent job and as the economy went into shambles. we were better off under mubarak, they said. on june 30 of last summer, the egyptian people emerged into the streets and out of 83 million egyptians, 30 million to 33 million came to the strees to put st to remove morsi and in a government of the people. and jun

with president putin tomorrow -- yesterday morning for about an hour and a half to asking president clinton to engage directly with the ukrainian government. he also says the u.s. is suspending its preparations for the g-8 summit in june to take place in sochi, russia. the united kingdom is also suspending its involvement. senators --r u.s. some tweets from u.s. senators on the ukraine. feed policy and's twitter -- you can follow c-span's , and here is secretary of state john kerry on meet the press. >> let me make it clear. president putin is not operating from a place of strength here. ? was his supporting president. he was thrown out despite support. and in ausing force completely inappropriate manner that will invite banker the world, and it already is. he is not going to gain by this. he may be able to have his troops for some time in crimea, but the fact is he is going to lose on the international stage, russia's going to lose, the russian people are going to lose. is going to lose all of the glow that came out of the olympics coming his $60 billion extravaganza. he is not going to ha
